Unrelenting Faith

Faith is persistent. Mark gives us an account of the woman who went to Jesus because she wanted Him to heal her daughter who had an unclean spirit. the woman was a Gentile--a Greek. First, she cried out to Jesus. He does not answer. She cries out again, determined to get His attention and this bothered the disciples. They urged Jesus to send her away because she was crying out after them.

Then she went over to Jesus and worshipped Him saying, "Lord, help me." Jesus told her that "it was not good to take the children's bread and throw it to the little dogs." Her response was, "True, Lord, yet even the little dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters' table."

Jesus said to her, "O woman, great is your faith. Let it be to you as you desire." Her daughter was healed at that very hour (Mark 7:24-30).

This woman's faith was one of:
- action - she went to Jesus
- trust and confidence in the power of Jesus to heal her daughter
- certainty - she was sure that Jesus could heal her daughter
- determination - she was determined to get her daughter the help she needed
- persistent - she cried out to Jesus then went up to Him and then she responded to what seemed like an insult with wise words

Love for her daughter and an unyielding faith in Jesus whom she had heard about motivated this mother to come and fall at His feet. Mark says that she kept asking Jesus to cast the demon out of her daughter. Her faith got the results she desired. When she got home she found the demon gone out and her daughter lying on the bed.

We need faith that does not give up. It asks, knocks and seeks until the door is opened. We need stubborn faith. It cries out to God until He answers. We need the faith of the Syro-Phoenician woman.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

What a great reminder of the kind of faith we need. Sometimes I feel like I'm "nagging" when I pray the same prayer over and over - but this reminds me I am just being persistent as long as I am praying it in faith. Thanks!
